Painted Lady

Roger McGuinn

 GD
 Followin the stars through the honkey-tonks and bars
 F6a9Ca9G
 Dream away on a country music pride  
 G
 Start the evenin' by myself,
 D
 but you can bet by the hour of twelve
 F6a9Ca9GG
Gonna have a pretty painted lady by my side     
 F6a9Ca9GG
Talkin' ^?bout a pretty painted lady by my side           

Now I'll tell that woman how it used to be
when the west was wild and the land was free
How a western word would travel for a country mile
Then one day when the drugstores came
and forced my hand to play a truckin' game
Wishin' to be a cowboy all the while
 FCG
Yes, I was wishin' to be a cowboy all the while  

 E-A-
 Painted Lady tell me of the past gone by    
 GC
 Hold me like the open range and ride me high
Take me to the days when your dress was made of calico or gingham
 CA-F6a9
And a man was a man....                   
 GG
Painted Lady with your painted face
Tell me bout your life in this painted place
Tell me with your lovin' lips and lovin' eyes
I can feel the pain, I can see the fears
on the painted cheeks that hide the tears
Of a lovely lonesome cowgirl in disguise
Talkin' bout a lovely lonesome cowgirl in disguise
